Practice Tip of the Week

BE A STAR - Videotape a "concert" of your favorite pieces.  (Save this one and look at it next year.  You will be amazed).



 We will be hosting our annual weekend workshop for ALL of our students, on the weekend of November 8th and 9th.  This is an opportunity to come to a wonderful Suzuki Workshop and enjoy working with world class teachers for the weekend.  Master classes will be scheduled on Friday, and Groups will be on Saturday.  We will have 2 great elective classes if you choose to participate in them; Fun with Snacks and Bucket Drumming/Percussion. It is a great opportunity and a way to enhance your musical skills in a fun environment.
